“WE LOOK forward to stronger ties with India as there us so much in common from the culture point of view between India and Israel,” said Michal Gur-Aryeh, spokesperson of the Embassy of Israel. She was here on the inaugural day of ‘Vibrant Israel’ — a photo-exhibition put up by the Israel Embassy at the State Museum..
The exhibition covers various aspects of Israel ranging from its heritage, culture and art, tourism. Besides, it also depicts mesmerising landscapes of the country’s development in the fields of science and technology, industry, agriculture and education.
The photographs of the Israeli cities of Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv, Haifa and Jaffa and those of the more common tourism locales like the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan Valley are truly breathtaking. The exhibition would be displayed in eight different cities in various parts of the country after Bhopal. Baroda would be the next destination following which it would move down south.
Responding to questions on the relations between India and Israel and the possibility of joint ventures between the two countries, Michal Gur-Aryeh said that she found a lot of similarities with regard to culture.
The people of Israel are very good at visualizing ideas whereas the people of India are good at implementing and following new projects, she observed, responding to whether the two countries could come up with feasible projects.
She said that since agriculture is a very vital aspect of the economy of both the countries, the governments of Israel and India have decided to form a joint working group that would meet in New Delhi to discuss the possibilities of ventures in agriculture.
The Israeli delegation would arrive in India on March 16 for a weeklong deliberation on agricultural ties. Gur-Aryeh also informed that 100 Israeli companies are trying to establish good trade relations with India in the field of science and technology.
‘I don’t know how much Israel means to India but India surely is very important to us’, she commented explaining that Israel was a very small yet extremely diverse country.
